Just shoot me

How is this for messed up? (Novak).
WASHINGTON -- George W. Bush's agents have convinced conservative Republican senators who were heartsick over his nomination of Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court that they must support her to save his presidency. . .

Whatever her qualifications, dubious Republican senators after hearing from Gillespie decided they could not deny his chosen court nominee to a president on the ropes. Bush has solidified Republican support not because he is strong but because he looks weak.
For weeks I have been reading about how the Supreme Court is the most important issue to conservatives. Now they are talking about giving a pass to someone who seems less impressive every day because of Bush's weak poll numbers? If that turns out to be true, it is pathetic.
